Research Analyst

Global Energy Infrastructure (GEI) London Full-time

Compensation: £22-25k

Location: London (flexible working; 1-2 days/week in office at present)

About GEI

Global Energy Infrastructure (GEI) is the data business of the Gulf Energy Information media and intelligence group. GEI provides extensive data on global hydrogen, LNG, refining, petrochemicals, gas processing and oil and gas pipelines infrastructure through subscriptions to the GEI website and spatial mapping data through the GEI Mapping platform. GEI prides itself on delivering high quality, actionable intelligence on physical assets across the energy industry, allowing its customers to take decisions with confidence that they have reliable data underpinning their analysis. Its customers include oil and gas companies, including some of the world’s largest, as well as governments, intergovernmental agencies, consultancies and academic researchers.

About the role

GEI is aiming to recruit two research analysts focused on maintaining and expanding databases of accurate and quantifiable information on relevant projects, one to cover hydrogen and the other to cover pipelines and LNG. This is an exciting opportunity for a recent graduate or someone early in their career to develop skills primarily in research and data management, but also to develop data analysis capabilities and to create compelling data-backed narratives both for subscribers and to aid in product marketing. There will also be the opportunity to contribute to building more meaningful customer-facing relationships working alongside the commercial team.

The hydrogen database includes facilities for the production of hydrogen, ammonia and other H2-related fuels. It also tracks projects that are using hydrogen, e.g. in the transportation and power sectors. The pipeline database includes facilities for the transportation of natural gas, crude oil and refined products. The LNG database covers liquefaction plants and regasification terminals.

Research analysts will report to the data team leader in Gulf’s London office; will work in a global team that also spans Houston and Manila, The Philippines; and will liaise closely with relevant editorial teams—Hydrogen Economist and H2Tech for hydrogen and Petroleum Economist and Pipeline & Gas Journal for pipelines and LNG. They will have the following responsibilities:

  • Research and define new projects and add relevant information to the database
  • Liaise with a team in the Philippines collecting contact information for projects
  • Proactively monitor existing projects for new developments and update the database in a timely manner
  • Engage with the data to produce analytical content for the GEI website
  • Support the commercial team as a ‘subject matter expert’
  • Work with relevant editorials team to embed GEI content in their stories and to encourage synergies between the journalistic and data understanding of key industry trends
  • Use the data to create compelling narratives that can assist marketing efforts across a range of media, including text, graphics, audio and video
  • Be a face of GEI research expertise in forums such as webcasts and industry events
